Frequently Asked Questions
If pipes are old and fragile, can this solution fix my pipes?
In most cases YES!, however in all cases a site visit must be arranged with an ePIPE specialist who will assess the problem and make the final determination.
Does ACE DuraFlos’ ePIPE outlast a new pipe?
YES! New pipes start to deteriorate the moment the water is turned on. Epoxy lined pipes help protect against corrosion.
Can ACE DuraFlos’ ePIPE system be planned around the tenants schedule?
YES! Restoration is planned as far ahead as possible. An updated schedule of the units to be restored is published in the lobby on a daily basis. The process should not compromise a tenant’s standard of living.
What type of pipe can the Ace DuraFlo's ePIPE System restore?
The ePIPE product is designed to coat a variety of piping systems in-place. We offer solutions for domestic water systems (galvanized, copper, and PEX piping) and non-potable systems (chiller systems, fire sprinkler systems, gas lines, snow melt systems).
Is this an environmentally friendly alternative?
Yes, ePIPE restores your existing pipes, which in turn reduces the cutting of walls, floors, and ceilings normally associated with the most conventional methods. ePIPE reduces waste and strain on landfills. ePIPE protection minimizes the leaching of harmful metals such as lead from entering your drinking water. This is especially helpful for buildings or homes testing positive for asbestos, so you are not putting yourself or loved ones in harms way
Will carpet and flooring be protected when crews are in a unit or home?
YES! The crews conduct all their work inside the building so no mud or dirt is tracked in. The only working material likely to touch flooring is the food grade hose that supplies the air to the piping system. In the event that a unit requires special attention, flooring protection is put down before work is commenced
Does ACE DuraFlos’ ePIPE System save a building owner and tenants money?
YES! Since the ePIPE’s pipe restoration restores a building’s piping system within the walls, owners save thousands of dollars by not paying to replace their existing piping system. Many of our customers also find a significant savings due to the fact that there is no displacement of any dwellers during the restoration process. Not to mention, the savings for those buildings or houses that have tested positive for asbestos and now can reduce the cost of remediation with the patented ePIPE process.
Who has used ACE DuraFlos’ ePIPE pipe restoration?
Some of the largest companies in the nation have taken advantage of this proven and patented technology for many years. Some customers include leading hotel brands like Marriott Hotels, HUD and Public Housing nationwide, State colleges and school districts, US Army Corps of Engineers, US Department of Defence, Governments of Spain, and thousands of buildings and homeowners.
